Ambitious Product design student from Central Saint Martins. One of few students on the sustainability committee, keen on making positive changes for the University’s performance. Strength in communicating ideas with others, critical feedback and keeping a fast work pace. Over all an adaptable work horse that learns fast, getting jobs done with flair and with something a bit different. Background as an Artist and Illustrator. DBS checked. Fluent in French, learning Italian. Touch-typer who is proficient on the computer, with a decent grasp of basic and advanced software programs. Tendency to lead the way taking the initiative with unique responses to briefs, without the need for nannying. Now determined to deploy my skills in a stimulating professional environment.
